What's the affect of having different types of strings? I never really took the time to find out.

Examples:
Stainless Steel
Nickel
Nickelwound

etc....

Heres what I know.
The different types of strings produces a different sound. Like if you get maple strings, their obscenely nice and like your fingers feel amazing. they just sort of glide. For the others I really don't know, but the more expensive they are the better. - lol like all other stuff.

nickel wound or pure nickel wrap strings are going to have a warmer, less edgy sound to them as nickel is not as magnetically active as steel. Strings with the stainless steel wrap are going to sound brighter and have marginally more output. They'll probably also last longer before they sound dead. I should point out, none of this is scientifically proven, just my own observations in using the same gauge strings of different materials. The cores are typically not going to change much as they need to be magnetically active enough to send signal through the pickups.

Steel lasts longer and sounds brighter, but they also wear down your frets faster.
